How can technology help with dental fear?
When you come in for your dental check-up, it can be helpful to know about the equipment we use to make you feel more confident and comfortable with your treatment.
At Island Dental, we use a technology called Air Abrasion, which allows the dentist to prepare a tooth for a restoration without using a traditional, noisy dental drill.
What is Air Abrasion?
This system is a little bit like sandblasting your teeth. A handpiece blows air with high-velocity, microfine abrasive particles on to your teeth, in a very precise way, to remove only the decay and preserve healthy tooth structure.
Many of our patients prefer it because it’s:
- Quieter – no “scary” noises or vibration
- Minimally invasive, often without local anaesthesia
- A very comfortable procedure
If you have any questions about the Air Abrasion procedure or how we can help with your dental fear, ask us. Call Island Dental in West Lakes Adelaide today on (08) 8449 9777 for your next check-up.
